Tran Takes Hit But Still Among Leaders


Pre-flop, J.C. Tran, who is among the chip leaders so far raised 3200, which was immediately called by Michael Cua.


Tran fired once again with 4000 but for the second time, Cua immediately made the call. Obviously the pair of 8's on the board did not scare him at all.

Both checked at the turn {9-Spades} as Cua raised after the river {3-Spades}

After tanking a little bit, Tran got away from his hand as Cua showed {A-}{A-}

Despite losing this one, Tran is still among the players with big stacks. For Cua, he's slowly but surely heating up.
